We recently stayed at Residence Inn Anaheim Maingate during our trip to America in December 2012. The hotel is in a good location and is only one block back from Disney Way and is a short 15 minute walk to Disneyland and California Adventure Park. We stayed in the Loft room which was a 2 storey room with a King Bed upstairs and 2 Queen Beds in the second bedroom and had 2 bathrooms.If you have an upstairs room you can open the windows and let in fresh air, they have a lock on them so they can be left open at night also. We were able to prepare our own meals if we felt like it as we also had a full kitchen with oven, microwave and full size refrigerator.They also provided cutlery and crockery. The only complaint we had was that the table only had seating for 4 and we were a party of 5. We also had advantage of a dishwasher so no one had to stand and do dishes. The free Wi-Fi is also quite good.
Breakfast was included daily and we had a good selection of food from cereals to pancakes, waffles and french toast, bacon and eggs, toast and bagels. You are also able to take the food back to your room and eat at your own leisure, not a bad idea as sometimes the dining room got quite crowded.
We walked to Disneyland from the hotel but they do offer a shuttle bus that takes you to the gate also for a fee.
During the week on Mon, Wed and Fri the hotel organises theme nights and put on Pizza nights, Hot Dog nights etc, a chance to meet other guests.
Our room was near the pool and spa, but the noise did not affect us. We were also able to see the fireworks from Disneyland from our front door which was nice to watch each night.
There are some nice restaurants near by and we had dinner at The Cheesecake Factory one night which is very nice if a bit pricey but still reasonable.
If you are into shopping the Orange Outlets is the place to go, a large selection of shops with great prices.
We would recommend this hotel to our friends and would most likely stay there again for the convenience of the self catering and able to have 5-6 people in the room which is not always available at most hotels.
